would like to know other options once blood tests come back,if needed

August 13, 2016

Perhaps because I was a new patient, but both appointments were more than 30 minutes which has never happened before. I felt that all my questions were answered well and I left with confidence that my physical was comprehensive.

August 07, 2016

good

August 05, 2016

Excellent knowledge and manner.

August 05, 2016

I liked her a lot & she spent time with me & answered all my questions.

August 03, 2016

incredible level and quality of care by physician

August 01, 2016

Dr Kierstead listens, shows genuine concern in your wellbeing. I don't feel rushed. I feel that she definitely is my partner in helping me to be healthier. I referred my daughter to her. She was able to prescribe a medication that worked for her that the specialist had not been able to do!

July 29, 2016

Dr. Kierstead has tremendous medical knowledge and always gives the best care at every appointment. Her diagnoses are always correct and her careful use of antibiotics is much appreciated. Her concern for the patient is obvious and she converses with the patient directly and thoughtfully. Her whole demeanor breeds confidence in her abilities as a doctor. We so appreciate Dr. Kierstead and her quick responses to our medical needs.

July 26, 2016

The doctor took the time to address all my concern about my health and medications. it was my first visit and I was very impressed that she took the time to talk to me and more importantly to listen to me.

July 10, 2016

Our care provider is one of the best doctors we've ever had. Her medical knowledge is excellent and her demeanor and sense of personal concern is most reassuring in every encounter.

June 26, 2016

Dr. Kierstead is the best physician I have ever had. She is ""real" and very compassionate and am in excellent. care with her.

June 20, 2016

dr Kierstead had looked over my chart before she came into the room and talked with me about previous issues.

June 19, 2016

I enjoyed meeting Dr. Kirstead and have recommended her to another person.

June 08, 2016

Dr. Kiersted is great; she is so thorough and explains everything. She got back to me with answers to everything we discussed. I would recommend anyone to her.

May 31, 2016

Dr Kierstead is fantastic. I travel from SLC to Park City to see her as she is very good at talking with you and not to you. She is also very thorough in her questions and and exams. She makes you feel comfortable and you go away knowing that you were well taken care of.

May 23, 2016

dr kierstead in truly sincere and compassionate. it's as though she's a very wise, kind friend.

May 13, 2016

excellent care ...

May 11, 2016

I have alopecia, Dr. prescribed a medication that causes hair loss

May 06, 2016

Dr. Kierstead was very personable & professional. She spent much time discussing my different medical issues. She was patient and explained medical issues in a manner understandable to me. I look forward to working with her on addressing my medical problems.

April 25, 2016

Allison is the primary reason we selected the Redstone facility for our medical needs. We have, and continue to recommend her to our friends.

April 05, 2016

I really like Dr. Kierstead. Whenever I hear somebody is looking for a physician I always recommend her.

March 29, 2016

So very pleased with Dr. Kerstead. I just love her.

March 21, 2016

Some things were left unresolved at the end of the visit.

March 18, 2016

Dr. Kierstad was very thorough in her questions and explorations in helping me to find a diagnosis for the problems I have been experiencing. She showed great concern for my anxiety in not knowing how to solve the issues.

March 17, 2016

Best doctor I have had....she is insightful and caring.

March 16, 2016

Medical terms I didn't know were defined for me.

March 14, 2016

Dr. Kierstead is on top of my medical conditions. I trust her implicitly.

March 01, 2016

I realize I am not a typical patient, I have a PhD in Chemistry and have worked in the pharmaceutical biotech industry for 40 years. Allison engaged me in a conversation about my health, the current problem, took into account the particulars of my total healthcare situation and we came to a very creative, appropriate plan moving forward. I sent her an email after the visit thanking her for the dialog.

February 29, 2016

Dr. Kierstead is the best!!! It shows she cares about her patients. :) Thank you Dr. Kierstead.

February 16, 2016

Always explains things completely

February 15, 2016

LOVE Dr. Kierstead!! She is the best!!!

February 15, 2016

She closes her ears after my first few words. She listens but does not hear any of my words after that or even shows any concern for my beliefs and knowing my own body and what works for me. It is her way or the highway. She seems to forget that I've lived in my body for 66 years and NO ONE knows it better than me. I respect the time it took her for her education, but she has completely lost touch with the person factor in this equation.

February 07, 2016

Awesome care experience!

February 05, 2016

Dr. Kierstad has an interesting "bedside" manner. It's neither completely off-putting nor entirely likeable. She has an abruptness to her that I'm not sure about.

January 07, 2016

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Kierstad. She showed genuine interest and was extremely thorough going through the files that were provided to Utah Health. My wife is going to be calling to set up an appointment with her also.

December 31, 2015

the best.

December 11, 2015

I like her updated medical info, which she shares with me as she explains the treatment.

November 23, 2015

Dr. Allison Kierstead is a knowlegable, experienced, caring physician who gives me confidence in following her directives and taking any prescribed medicines to help me feel better.

November 04, 2015

I had both read and heard about Dr. Kierstead prior to meeting her and had even recommended her to friends and family. Upon meeting her, I was impressed. I appreciated the amount of time she spent with me and found her to be quite thorough.

November 04, 2015

Dr. Kierstead is always thorough and great at explaining things. I feel like we are a team and she is an amazing Coach!

November 03, 2015

I love Dr. Kierstead!! I would recommend her to anyone!

October 27, 2015

I have seen many doctors and specialists over the years for my health condition and Dr. Kierstead has unequivocally been the most understanding and helpful of any physician. It was tremendously comforting to work with her and I felt that I was treated like a guest of honor.

October 26, 2015

I have a couple of friends who are in search of a female doctor in the area. I have already recommended this doctor. She was very knowledgeable and still warm and friendly. I thought she was very personable and through.

October 18, 2015

Again - my biggest concern is not being able to get hold of my doctor, receive return calls, etc. How do I call her directly so I can get a return call if I have a concern?

October 18, 2015

I'm very pleased to be under the care of Dr Kearstead

October 10, 2015

Dr Kiersted is excellent.

September 09, 2015

Dr. Kiersted was very helpful.

September 01, 2015

She restored my faith in finding an excellent doctor

August 26, 2015

She seemed genuinely concerned and was eager to find out what was going on. She was very honest with me about not knowing what was happening, but did blood tests and x rays to find out. Once the tests came back she called me to let me know the results the next day. It was a very positive experience.

August 21, 2015

Dr. Kierstead is excellent.

August 16, 2015

doctor made an error on prescription which wasn't discovered until I went to the pharmacy the next morning (Saturday), so I can't pick up the prescriptions until after the pharmacist calls the doctor on Monday morning.

August 07, 2015

extremely helpful, and willing to explain

July 31, 2015

Dr. Kierstead was very thorough and thankfully very proactive as I ended up with appendicitis. she was in great communication with me and the doctors at Intermountain before surgery.

July 29, 2015

Although very knowledgeable, the care provider did not seem open to discussion about any treatment other than the one she was recommending. I appreciated that she took time to speak with me, but it seemed a little closed minded.

July 17, 2015

I felt the doctor would have given me as much time as I needed. She did not "process" me. I felt like I was a person to her. She was great. She spent an enormous amount of time with me not only discussing me but answering questions I had about the community and schools. Wow!

June 23, 2015

Once the doctor came in for my appointment, she was very professional with my concerns

June 19, 2015

I really appreciated the time the doctor spent listening to my concerns. She was attentive and receptive during the appointment.

June 17, 2015

I have already recommended your clinic to others.

June 10, 2015

Best doctor, EVER!

May 25, 2015

most unprofessional I've ever had with a doctor. wonder if they were having a severe personal issue

April 15, 2015

April 14, 2015

March 26, 2015

I already have recommended her to others.

March 23, 2015

Doctor rarely looked up from keyboard.

March 20, 2015

Dr. Kiersted has to be the best doctor I have ever had the experience of dealing with. She is outstanding.

March 13, 2015

dr kirstead is one of the best I've met in along time, She nailed my problem which I was silently screaming in the past about to my previous doctors, I feel very positive in the line of treatment she chose for me.

March 12, 2015

overall good experience

March 12, 2015

Very good.

March 01, 2015

I have already referred a friend, who was needing a new provider, to Dr.Kierstead

February 28, 2015

As I mentioned previous, not happy with check up. Ended up in ER with bronchitis 2 days earlier.

February 10, 2015

I met Allison at 5 for life event. I liked her approach to middle age women. she really cares. I am happy to have her as primary care.

February 10, 2015

Excellent communications. Attentive.

February 09, 2015

All very good

February 07, 2015

I'm very thankful to have Dr. Kierstead as my internist!

January 03, 2015

Dr. Kierstead listens to my concerns and gives great feedback.

January 03, 2015

Good and happy experience. However, I didn't here the results of my tests quickly enough, or clear directions as to what I should be expecting or doing the next couple of days as a result of a condition I had. It was a friday so I don't expect as much on the weekend, so plus points for that I guess.

December 18, 2014

Dr. Kierstead is the BEST! She listens, she's knowledgeable, she's professional and pleasant, she's terrific!

December 15, 2014

Dr. Kierstead is wonderful

December 15, 2014

I was very impressed and have asked to have to have her as my PCP. I have also recommended her to a friend of mine who is in need of a PCP.

December 12, 2014

she was amazing I would recommend her to anyone. she made me feel so comfortable and she was great to talk to about any issues

December 09, 2014

I went with a main concern with a few others and she had absolutely no interest in checking it out and coming up with a solution. therefore, my visit was a waste of time, money and concern for my health. I wish I never saw her!!

December 08, 2014

Doctor was very nice and attentive.

November 27, 2014

The reason for my office visit was very complicated and the doctor was patient and concerned about helping me.

November 24, 2014

I changed from St Marks to the University Health care system so I could continue with Dr. Kirstadt

November 21, 2014

I look forward to the coming years of having this practice take care of our medical needs.

November 09, 2014

Dr. Kierstead is one of the best doctors I have seen. She listened to my concerns and had answers to address my concerns. She sent my lab results to me quickly in MyChart and offered suggestions. I feel very confident in her skills as my doctor.

November 03, 2014

Dr Kierstaead Is the best!!!!

November 03, 2014

October 16, 2014

Dr. K is a new provider for me and she is excellent both with care as well as prevention/very knowledgable and explains information

October 12, 2014

Would like the doctor to clean hands upon entering and leaving the rooms. They touch those dirty door knobs, etc!

October 03, 2014

I really liked Dr Kierstead. She saw me because my primary was not available and I did not feel like it was the first time. She made me feel very comfortable and in good hands.

September 19, 2014

I AM VERY PLEASED WITH DR. KIERSTEAD

September 12, 2014

good

September 11, 2014

I followed Dr Kierstead from her previous practice. I don't live in Park City, but she is worth the drive.
